Hi everyone, OP here. Never thought this would get posted. I think the worst part of what happened was that only my teacher one fiend and myself seemed to have noticed. We stared at each other in silence for a bit before I asked my teacher if I could go walk it off. He let me.

#13, no, it's not understandable. You don't need to listen to them to have heard OF them. Not having heard of The Beatles is comparable to not having heard of Mozart. And you probably heard of him, even if you don't listen to classical music.

I'm not offended, but it's hard to have not heard of one of the most well known bands there is, that's all. Junk music is overtaking the world, replacing the good music that used to exist. It's just sad.

Yes, well, if you grew up with parents who didn't listen to the Beatles and classmates who didn't wear those "Beatles" shirts, it's entirely possible to have not heard of them. There are a lot of classic bands that people today haven't heard of - same as if you didn't listen to pop music, nobody would fault you for not knowing who Ariana Grande is.

#39 You are exactly proofing my point while trying to proof the opposite. I don't listen to pop music. I don't think I've ever heard a song by Ariana Grande. I have no idea what she even looks like. But I've come across the name before, probably while scimming the news headlines of some website, and I know that she is a musician of some sort.

There is no need to be able to identify any Beatles song to know they existed and made music.

It's different for all ages. One of my coworkers who is middle age knows more current bands then me, but when a customer asked if she knew who CCR was she had no clue, whereas I'm 17 and was able to tell her who they were

Late response - but you kind of proved my point. Ariana is in the news because she's current. If she weren't in the tabloids, would you have heard of her?
The Beatles are mentioned, yes, but it's infrequent. They were influential, but they're not all over the news and radio today like they were 50 years ago. I don't really get offended if people don't know bands or singers, so maybe that's just me.

Beatle is a more ear-pleasing spelling of Beetle.

I'm not surprised someone doesn't know the Beatles. Things are changing so quickly and so fast.

I hope you educated him who the Beatles were or atleast advised him to use google!

Who ever don't know who the Beatles are needs to fall off the face of the Earth.

Uncultured swine!!


I don't really hate them. I just don't care too much for them. None of their songs have caught my ear. I'm very picky with my music. I don't go anywhere near pop and rap though.
